Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Anesthesia and Pain Medicine of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) located at Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH). The anesthesiologists, certified registered nurse anesthetists, and staff are dedicated to providing care, love, and hope to their patients throughout the perioperative period.

The majority of our physician faculty have completed post-residency fellowship training in pediatric anesthesia and are either board-certified in anesthesiology by the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA) or currently enrolled in the ABA examination process. Many of our faculty members also have further training in pediatrics, pediatric critical care, pediatric cardiac anesthesia, or pain medicine.  Three members of our faculty are core specialty board-certified anesthesiologists who provide full-time support to the Arkansas Children’s Hospital (ACH) Burn Center, where the majority of the patients are adults. Our anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists provide clinical care at a wide variety of locations around the ACH campus. Our Pediatric Pain Clinic provides acute and chronic pain services. All ACH-based anesthesiologists are physician faculty members of UAMS.

The Division of Pediatric Anesthesia and Pain Medicine works with UAMS to provide excellent anesthesiology residency training experiences as part of the core anesthesiology residency program, and a pediatric anesthesia fellowship program that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The fellowship program is for graduate residents who seek to obtain additional training and expertise in pediatric anesthesia. The division also provides educational opportunities for a variety of students and residents from other training programs.
